Queen Mary University of London is delighted to be working with the Fulbright Commission to support a Fulbright-Queen Mary Postgraduate Award as part of the prestigious Fulbright Awards Programme.
The Fulbright Commission, founded on 22 September 1948, aims to foster mutual cultural understanding through educational exchange between the US and the UK. The global Fulbright Programme is one of the most prestigious awards programmes world-wide operating in over 150 countries, with over 300,000 alumni. Approximately 15,000 UK nationals have studied in the US and over 12,000 US nationals in the UK on the Commission’s educational exchange programmes.
As one of the Fulbright Commission’s university partners, Queen MAry is committed to promoting these aims, which form an important part of our international outlook.
A Fulbright-Queen Mary postgraduate award will be offered each year to candidates wishing to pursue a one-year Master’s degree in any discipline.
Award holders will receive full overseas tuition fees and a generous stipend of c. £15000 which is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs (accommodation, travel, subsistence, etc.) while in the UK.
Award holders will also be invited to participate in a programme of diverse cultural activities, a mentoring programme, and a series of networking events, which are run throughout the year by the Fulbright Commission.
Awards are open to US citizens who are not currently resident in the UK.
How to apply
Candidates are required to apply to the Fulbright online through the Institute of International Education. Applications open in late February and run until September for candidates wishing to start their course a year later.
Candidates should also apply to their chosen course at Queen Mary online following our normal admissions procedures.
Courses that are jointly taught with another institution are not eligible for this award. For example, the MA History of Political Thought which is taught jointly with UCL is not eligible. Also, MSc Plant and Fungal Taxonomy, Diversity and Conservation taught at Kew Gardens is not eligible for the Fulbright Scholarship.
